'Claret Jug' and 'Championship Belt' - Golfing Trophies come to Bedford!
On Thursday 8th June, we were lucky enough to receive a visit from Hannah Fleming, who is a curate at The British Golf Museum in Scotland. She told us all about the history of golf and the players who have won the trophies throughout the years. She brought the 'Claret Jug' and the 'Championship Belt' along with her, and she explained what they were. Some of our pupils were even chosen to polish it! Every class got their photograph taken with the trophies.
Recently, our Reception children visited the Liverpool football Academy, where they took part in a circuit of activities with coaches from the Academy. The children worked in small groups and had the opportunity to practise dribbling with the ball and shooting goals. The children all received certificates at the end of the afternoon with the signatures of all of the first team players on. Both children and staff thoroughly enjoyed their time at the Academy.
Lewis, a representative from Jamie Carragher Sportshas been leading a selection of children from across the school on various activities at lunchtime.
The children have been wearing FitBits, which will track their fitness and amount of steps they take.
Some of the older children are taking notes on what they're eating, how many steps it would take to work off certain foods and how they could lead healthier, more active lives.
Staff Netball Tournament
On Thursday 27th April, Bedford entered a staff netball tournament, which took place at Litherland Sports Park. Our team played very well, with goals being scored by both Mrs King and Mr Stafford. Unfortunately, we did not make the finals, but a great time was had by all! Go Bedford Ballers!

We are such a talented bunch at Bedford, and we applaud everybody's achievements!
This half term, our Y2 children have begun a series of lessons run by the Active Sefton team. During these sessions, the children have been learning about healthy eating habits and taking part in physical activity. The children are really enjoying the sessions and learning lots about food, and the the benefits of being active.

Speedstacking World Record
On Thursday 17th November, Bedford Primary took part in a Guinness World Record attempt! Throughout the day, a team of 46 stackers stacked continuously, hoping to join thousands of other schools around the world in breaking the record for mass participation in speedstacking. We await confirmation from the officials as to whether or not the record was broken - fingers crossed!
During the record attempt, the stackers, who were from years 3-6, were timed completing a single rotation, and our quickest individuals included Niccole and Arish from Y5 and Eleanor, Chloe and Harrys from Y6 - well done guys!
